SANTA CLARA, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–July 5, 2022–
What’s new: Mobileye, an Intel company, has launched the EyeQ Kit™ – the first software development kit (SDK) for the EyeQ system-on-chip that enables driver assistance and future autonomous technologies for automakers around the world. Built to take advantage of the upcoming EyeQ .’s powerful and highly energy-efficient architecture 6 High and EyeQ Ultra processors, EyeQ Kit enables automakers to leverage Mobileye’s proven core technology, while deploying their own differentiated code and human-machine interface tools on the EyeQ platform.
In July 2022, Mobileye will launch the EyeQ Kit to provide automakers with driver assistance and future autonomous technologies.

“With EyeQ Kit, our customers can benefit from the best of both worlds: Mobileye’s proven and validated core technologies, along with their proprietary expertise in delivering unique driver experiences and interfaces. As more core vehicle functions are defined in software, we know our customers want the flexibility and capability they need to differentiate and define their brands through code†
– Prof. dr. Amnon Shashua, president and chief executive officer of Mobileye
How it works: Through EyeQ hardware and software, automakers can access a wide range of Mobileye solutions, including computer vision, REM™ crowdsourced mapping and RSS based driving policy. Using EyeQ Kit, automakers can further leverage the power of Mobileye’s system-on-chip to extend advanced driver features with a look and feel unique to their brands. And as the visual requirements for interaction and communication between drivers and vehicles become more complex, EyeQ Kit offers automakers a new path to tailor critical information flows. EyeQ Kit helps support features such as surround visualization, automated lane recognition and traffic sign recognition through more advanced augmented reality displays.
EyeQ Kit was developed by hundreds of Mobileye engineers leveraging extensive experience from Intel and Mobileye, with experts in compilers and development environments such as OpenCL standards, utilizing compilation frameworks used for intensive computing and deep learning. This approach enables car manufacturers to easily and efficiently develop their own applications. It also opens up the possibility of co-hosting third-party applications, reducing the cost of integrating other chips.
Why it matters: From general purpose CPU cores to high compute density accelerators – including deep learning neural networks – EyeQ has a scalable and modular architecture that strives for high performance while providing suitable energy efficiency to deploy artificial intelligence at the edge for automotive applications. Previous generations of the EyeQ chip have been used in more than 100 million vehicles, and dozens of the world’s largest automakers use them to provide safety and driver assistance features in hundreds of models around the world.
Now EyeQ Kit aims to reduce development costs, accelerate time to market and enable hardware vendor flexibility across the entire development cycle – from concept to implementation and performance tuning.
“Mobileye’s core technologies in computer vision, driving policy, REM and RSS are powered by purpose-built SoCs that enable scalability and efficiency. Automakers can now build on Mobileye’s core technologies while taking advantage of our diverse range of accelerators built specifically for ADAS and AV. Automakers can rely on the EyeQ Kit and the EyeQ processor family to quickly and efficiently bring a technologically advanced vision to life for their brands,” said Shashua.
EyeQ Kit has already been deployed to a major global automaker for future vehicle programs.
